Got this as my first airsoft gun, and I must say, it is worth the money! CYMA did a fantastic job with this M14 SOCOM 16. As the owner of the real-life counterpart, the detail put into this airsoft gun is incredible. I recently went airsofting with my friends, and absolutely -wrecked- them with this gun (of course, they had rather low-end guns, so this testimony might not be valid for the professionals).
-Might be a con for some, but the top rail is rather far forward. To me, this is a pro as it provides better eye relief.
-Stock battery not that great, I just bought a new one
-Don't use the sling it comes with, unless you want to drop your gun (I use an authentic M14 sling my dad gave me)
-Selector switch seems a bit fragile, just don't force it too hard
